Post Re: Theists crying over atheist churches

I define religion as the following:

A doctrine of ritual traditions, ceremonies, mythology, and associated dogma of a faith-based belief system which posits a posthumous promise, that some element of ‘self’ (be it a soul, consciousness, or memories, etc.) may, in some sense, continue beyond the death of the physical being.

Given that definition, then atheism is not a religion………..as easy as that

Do you want accurate terms? Labeling atheism as a religion, is inaccurate; it equates theism to religion. Which is wrong, because their are many religions that are atheist, even panthesitic in fact, such as Jainism.

The problem is that not everyone knows that. Some do it as a tu quoque fallacy, calling the silverware black.

That's funny.

So LEROY ignored any argument against his views, insulted those who disagreed with him, had an interest in converting others to his world view, was willing to adopt an incoherent or absurd position before granting that an atheist made a good point, and admitted no evidence that would convince him he was wrong... but dandan acted differently?

No, of course not. The same fool's behind all the different usernames. A pile of shit by any other name would smell as rank.



Really can you provide a single example of me ignoring a relevant argument? Can you provide an example of me insulting someone for disagreeing with me? Can you provide an example of me admitting that nothing will change my world view? Have I ever tried to convert you? Can you provide an example of an absurd position taken by me?

No, in fact I would argue that labeling things is irrelevant, the relevant question is whether if atheism, Jainism, Christianity, etc are true or not……..labeling them as religion or not is in my opinion irrelevant. (but sure it is just a personal opinion)

Language allows us to communicate. And if we don't do it properly, we can confusion and spread misinformation. Good definitions allow us to spread info that is accurate and correct. Bad definitions, can spread misinformation and give info that is inaccurate, baseless or even mythinfo .

Sure, but you can in theory define atheism and justify atheism regardless if you label it as a religion or not.

You can in theory show that atheism is true, regardless if you label it as a religion or not.



This is why I consider labels unimportant.

Given you don't know LEROY, you've just nailed the jelly to the wall.

This is how LEROY tries to evade any form of substantive discussion in every thread he partakes in. He always complains about semantics while trying inanely to smuggle in shit ideas through using woolly language, and when called on it, he starts whining about how everyone just focuses on mere words and meanings.

Aja, and can you provide an example of a discussion that I evade, by complaining about semantics?


Why is it that you can never support your accusations against me?

In reality, it would be more of a challenge to find a thread where LEROY didn't hide behind semantic games when he got his ass spanked.

You offer nothing in here. You don't belong in a place of reason.

Why are you still here?


Hmm... what do you call a question that becomes irrelevant as soon as you ask it?

Whereas, in reality they were just the first handful of posts in LEROY's recent post history and no filter was even needed to find them. Anyone sufficiently bored would be able to find hundreds of examples of LEROY running away from any substantive point of discussion by making up shit in a language he's far from fluent at and demanding people genuflect to his semantic games or else he spends pages depicting them as unreasonable, and depicting them as unreasonable because they're atheists.

Utter scum, every which way you look at it. He wouldn't know honesty if it slapping him round the face.

One would think that after being banned three times on three different accounts one would stop to think what one is doing wrong and try to adjust but not when one is a miserable little worm.
